The Strong Arm of the Lord and the Persecution of Christians
The Bible often uses the human arm to symbolize spiritual strength or power. The word is first used in Jacob’s dying prophecy concerning his beloved son Joseph: “But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob” (Genesis 49:24).
The source of all true strength is in almighty God, so it is not surprising to find at least 40 biblical references to the Lord’s powerful “arm” or “arms.” The Lord has promised in Isaiah 52:10 that when He “bares His arm” the lost world is able to be delivered from its bondage to Satan and sin and death.
Therefore, “the arm of the Lord” is none other than Jesus Christ. When He came into His world, most refused Him. Nevertheless, some believed. [His apostles - although strongly persecuted - proclaimed His good news far and wide making Christianity the strongest 'religion' on earth.]
